The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) support the UK economy by encouraging the flow of private capital from taxpaying individuals to some of the country’s brightest companies – those that show the most promise and the highest growth potential. These companies use investors’ money to help finance expansion and development at a time when the impact of growth can be most positively felt. In exchange for providing capital, investors are granted a series of generous tax reliefs by the UK government, helping them to mitigate the risks and enhance the returns that can be generated from investing in growing companies.

The main purpose of this guide is to get ‘under the bonnet’ of EIS and SEIS. Our aim is to delve a little more into the detail of these schemes, look at the component parts that make them tick and illustrate how they work in practice.
